    ‘Bible of Love': Snoop Dogg’s Gospel Album Now Streaming (Audio)

    Snoop Dogg is known mostly for hanging out with Martha Stewart and smoking weed these days, but once upon a time it would have seemed inconceivable that he would do something as audaciously incongruous as release a gospel record. But even though those days are over, it still feel a little bit odd that Snoop Dogg […]

    Final ‘Ready Player One’ Trailer (Video)

    I feel like the advertising campaign for Ready Player One has been going on forever, that there was never a time before everyone was arguing about this movie’s unique blend of insufferable 80s mythologizing and Spielberg action set-pieces. But actually it’s only been a few months, and now the whole thing is wrapping up with what is […]

    Xbox Game Pass: More Than 100 Games Streaming from the Cloud

    Microsoft evidently forewent a big publicity push for this service, but since it’s essentially Netflix for video games such a push probably wasn’t necessary. It’s Xbox Game Pass, and it’s now providing Xbox One users with cloud access to over a hundred games at ten bucks a month. For now, the Xbox Game Pass is just […]

    AMC ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ MCU Marathon Coming Soon

    AMC Theaters is giving everybody who’s been both asleep for ten years and having their homes fumigated a chance to watch 31 hours of Marvel Cinematic Universality in one long, ill-advised go.

    Sunspel Ian Fleming Collection

    Ian Fleming: Creator of James Bond and Napoleon Solo, WWII spy hero, bringer of the word “pussy” into the popular lexicon, style icon? That last one might not quite read, but that may change with the introduction of the Sunspel Ian Fleming Collection.

    “Only Slightly Exaggerated” Miyazaki-Inspired Travel Oregon Ad

    No offense intended to the people of that fine state, but I never really thought of Oregon as being a magical, Studio Ghiblian wonderland before. I say “before” because I’ve just watched the new ad from Travel Oregon, which is a total riff on the films of Hayao Miyazaki, entitled “Only Slightly Exaggerated.” The “Only […]
